Advantages of Organic Food

According to the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA), organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources. The aim is to conserve soil and water and to minimize soil erosion and degradation to enhance the quality of environment for the future generations. Organic dairy products, eggs, meat and poultry come from animals that are not given any antibiotics or growth hormones. Also organic foods are ‘pesticide-free’ and this makes it extremely safe.

The biggest advantage of organic food is that it is free from dangerous pesticides which have been linked to the development of certain types of cancers, immune disorders, aging and vision problems. In addition to this, pesticides may even irritate the lungs and the skin.

As compared to the non-organic counterparts, organic foods are fresher and more nutrient dense. They contain higher amounts of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which boosts our immune system and keeps diseases at bay. Also it tastes better than the conventional produce.

As dangerous and harmful chemicals are not used in organic farming, there is minimal water and soil pollution and it reduces soil erosion and improves the fertility of the soil. It is also beneficial for the bird and animals as it keeps them healthy too. This also proves that organic foods are extremely environment friendly.

Organic foods are very healthy and people of all age groups including the children and elderly can safely consume these foods without any risk of developing dangerous diseases.
